Fabrics and fireproofing
Contract furnishing fabrics don’t have to be boring! With contract ranges available to suit any commercial or business setting we will help you find the perfect one. We stock gorgeous plain fabrics and a wide choice of patterned fabrics, both on the roll and to order. Additionally, we have a choice of designs available to be printed onto a base cloth of your choice, so you can select the design you want and combine it with the most suitable fabric for your setting.
We do understand, though, that it’s not just about design. Choosing fabric for business or public buildings is a little more complicated than for a domestic setting. Current UK Fire regulations mean that business-owners have a duty of care to ensure that fabrics and furnishings used in non-domestic buildings are as safe as possible in case of fire.
As part of our contract service, we will ensure that the fabrics you choose will comply with fire safety regulations. We can arrange for fabrics to be fireproofed as needed, and supply fire retardant certification for your peace of mind. Alternatively all our printed-to-order contract fabric has the advantage of being inherently fire retardant. These fabrics are washable without losing any of their fireproofing qualities.
